[ obama ] i'm barack obama and i approve this message. welcome back. the sweltering heat does not have to mean your plants have to die and get brown. we have help for you derek thomas with thomas landscapes is here how are you. >> good. >> wearing the green perfect. >> wearing green you know you got to lighten it up. >> all right, tell us what we need to know so that our plants don't die in heat like this. >> first of all one of the most important things make sure you have planted your plants where
9:44 am
they like, plants have certain zones they like, plants like this hydrangea will do really well in the shade, where as if you need to pop it up a bit in the sun using a plant like exfascia or this tropical one will last all summer long in the sun in the blazing sun >> these are plants that really like it. >> really like it but if you put this hydrangea in full sun and it is wilting i have gotten hits on the website, what is wrong with my high dania this week it is in the -- hydrangea this week it is in the wrong position. this dusty miller is very drought tolerant but if you just planted this plant recently, it has not established a root system what is going on you will have to give it extra water you normally wouldn't if the plant starts the droop like this one don't hesitate to waterer plant. a lot of people thing they can't water their plants in the
9:45 am
evening because of fungus but if you have gone all day and haven't watered the plant get water on it at night. >> let's talk wind to water i think a lot of us have this concept in really severe heat you don't want to water it in middle of the day you are almost sizzling your lawns plants. >> night time is okay and in the middle of the day if you have a plant like this. this plant will recover now, if you don't water it in the middle of the heat of today because you thing that it is going to do it harm it is going to do it more harm because the plant will actually have cellular damage. the other thing to know when i say right plant right place these are both begonias if you go to the garden center, this begonia likes shade it will only do well in shade this begone you is an old fashioned wax bei don't know yeah this will do well in -- begonia, this will do well in sun or shade.
9:46 am
know the plant. if you are going away a lot and don't have an irrigation system go with plants like what you see over here, agave, seedham and even herbs, lavender, sorry rosemary, mint and even lavender will do well in a drought. >> you would agree some times you have the plants you have they are already planted and these are obviously great ideas what would you tell folks heading out of town for vacation, can you over water. >> no, you can't over water but what you can do, is put an extra layer of mulch on that plant because what that is going to do is help retain moisture, another great trick that you can use, you can recycle the bags, put the bag around the plant like that. >> water it before. >> and water it before, put the bag there a little bit of mulch on top of that and water that in that will retain the moisture, for several days longer, than it normally would. >> you know your neighbor is on
9:47 am
vacation if they have paper bags all over their plants. i actually heard this is a phenomena where the barks of trees with scald and you can paint them light colored bark. >> unless you are using and i wouldn't use any paint on the bark that is something we used the paint trees when we would cut them i would not use any you see it a lot in the tropics they will paint the white paint around the bark i would not do that because the bark is where the tree breathes and most of the time, what will happen with your trees if they get too hot even, like some of the trees that will really do it, is like crepe myrtle and also your american sycamores they will shed their bark to get more oxygen. >> tell us one more time these plants that love the sun just so people can hear it one more time hydrangea depending where you plant them. >> hydrangea's depending where you plant them can be resilient
9:48 am
